Join us in celebrating our hardworking nutrition professionals at USD 495! Today, on May 3, we honor School Lunch Hero Day, recognizing the dedication of those who ensure our students receive nutritious meals every day. From navigating food allergies to serving with a smile, our team goes above and beyond. School Lunch Hero Day, established in 2013 by The School Nutrition Association and "Lunch Lady" author Jarrett Krosoczka, is a special day to express gratitude to those who feed nearly 30 million students across America daily. Our school nutrition professionals are true heroes, balancing multiple roles and adhering to strict nutrition standards to provide safe and healthy meals. On average, Roberta, Shannon, Jan, Lori, Stephanie, and Tamarra serve 520 meals to students daily, and they also manage the fresh fruit and vegetable program for our elementary students. They play a vital role in fueling our students for success. Visit www.schoollunchheroday.com to learn more about this celebration.
